development that works for every san franciscan. i think that remains a big issue. and balancing the budget will be a priority. has to be a priority. we will do that. we have done that time and time again. public safety is also something we are very interested in. it has to be a priority, because if we do not have public safety, nothing else works. one of the things we are focusing on is trying to focus on how policing works in san francisco. i used to be a member of the police commission, and i learned that the most effective community policing is the policing where you have the police and the community working together. it is important to have police officers on the street and have the police presence. at the same time, there has to be a connection within the police and the community. so, that requires -- also we have a focus on violence prevention. in the mission, we are focused on gang activity. we have to balance the very important work of the police would be very important violence prevention work -- with the very importance violence prevention work we're doing on the ground. so, publ
is extremely small. and thrls is a really big demand for larger, new homes in san francisco. i've talked to a lot of realtors and of course it's not going to be cheap but there are people who afford to pay for this and they would rather live in san francisco than somewhere on the peninsula or outside san francisco and marin but there isn't a big stock of these homes and buying an older home is a lot more expensive proposition because you buy the older home and have to pay a lot for that and put a lot of money into upgrading a 1925 openly which oftentimes has not been, you know, brought up to date so they're looking for this type of product. and i would agree with staff we need some design changes. this is really knowy valley and know it's on the border with diamond heights but clearly is with nowie valley and it was changed a few years ago and gold mine comes down in a culdesac from diamond heights. but should reflect the style in nowie valley and looked at the stuff that's been built more recently and the ones built in the 1990's wasn't too bad but the single family home built in 2011,
-- dare i say -- not threatened, but some kind of competition has come in from the big boys? you were having a nice conversation earlier. i listen in. do you see yahoo! going local, for example, as a plus, or do you see them as competition? how did you see that? >> first, full disclosure, yahoo! is a content partner for oakland local. they distribute our content on their website. there is some back and forth. some people are wondering what the corporate industries are going to do in a hyperlocal space. i do think there is space for everyone to work together. one of the questions i'm interested in hearing about is whether the corporate entities are interested in working with local entities. we have been working with oakland for the last year-and-a- half, and i have a background in oakland activism, and it has still been difficult for us to get headway as an organization. that kind of community involvement takes a 24/7 kind of commitment. that is slightly different than the commitment it takes to run a yahoo! new site. i'm interested in with the challenges will be, but i'm much more int

to work on various things and certainly the committee is a big piece of that. as far as the drought program, it did go away yesterday at the board and we were anticipating about 100 retirements this year including the drop. this is not completely out of the average. the average is normally 60 to 90. without any officers coming in, it is getting to the point where we have to get serious about having some classes and we anticipate that there will be about 300 people set for retirement over the next three years. the good news is that it will not all go at once. there is an incentive to stay. you can assume that that is 300 patrol officers. as the upper ranks retires, the trickle down goes to the motion. at the end of this, the 300 folks would have retired and there is a chance that in the third year, that would be the largest year and that is what our hope is. so, we have a plan where we would need a minimum of three classes a year which would be consistent with when myself and capt. goldberg and today is my 30th anniversary in the police department. they were hiring five classes at a
black people. that big fight, brown versus the board of education so all the black kids can get an education. [inaudible] the books have pages missing, and they all have things written inside of them. at the main library, we have a demonstration going on. [inaudible] how come we cannot use that facility? they cannot even get a good job and fair pay. men, they come up missing. rape -- they do not want to talk about that, but if it is a white woman, it is on the news, on the radio, on television. i do not want to die like that. so i'm going to stay black and die. if i could do one thing -- >> i told you, you need to move on. do i need to get the police?" >> sir, i picked -- "sir, i paid my fare. it is my constitutional right." the driver gets off the bus. police officers come. they are at the back door. "i had trouble with this girl before." "the two of you need to get up. you know it is against the law." open " i paid my fair -- "i paid my fare. if i move now, i will get sick. i'm pregnant." there is a volunteer. i think he was sensing there was going to be trouble or something.
know who you can call to get a cab. i am a big believer in pedestrian bicycling as options to get around town. many cities in the world have far more people working or on bicycles into blocking or on bicycles. they are pleasant most of transit and are efficient. -- many cities in the world have far more people walking or on bicycles. they are pleasant and efficient forms of transportation. that will take cars off the road and make it easier for those who drive. if we want to create a world- class transportation system, we have to make a commitment to each of these modes of transit to allow us to move where we need to go. >> is it safe for pedestrians on the streets? >> it is not. in recent years, we have had too many pedestrian accidents. there are estimates it costs our cities several hundred millions a year because of traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities. i am asking one of our transit agencies to study where we're spending our dollars around the district and whether we invested more money would help to reduce our overall costs that come when a pedestrian is hit by a car.
it at scale, and that has been the big challenge. >> can you elaborate on that? what does that mean exactly? >> we would not exist if there was not a feeling that a lot of these communities do not have the experience online of finding the information that is most relevant to them. there are a lot of great weekly newspapers. there are a lot of bulletin boards, facebook woods, you name it. there is a lot of media focused at local, but not every community has it, and even the ones that do often are not getting the kind of service that i think they used to historical because of downsizing and regional newspapers not serving those communities the way they used to. so you will have the council meeting not really being covered. we have had numerous examples where board meetings, council meetings, things that those members got used to not being covered. suddenly, they were seeing the week after week and seeing that we were there to stay. >> in the audience, do you feel like you're communities are being covered well? do you know what is going on in your back yard? do you feel like your stories being
the service area. there will be a big impact here. there are other capital works on going. from yosemite to santa clara county, for the purposes of making sure that there is clarity on that. we could make it more specific on community invasion, so that people know where resources are telling without it getting to stuff not moving. >> that makes sense and i just want to make sure, first of all whether that mou should come back to us before it is finally signed, and whether or not we want something in their that provides dollar amounts around specific projects. maybe there is a five million- dollar art project, perhaps coming before this commission to be responsible for significant dollars. it seems that, because the positions have been raised, it would be another opportunity for public input before it is finalized. >> great. >> i do not know if that makes -- >> the resolution directs us into investments for public art and gives direction to the general manager to give the work to sign the mou. >> but there is no problem with continuing this item for filing this item? we have been the ligh
. >> crazy. right? >>> plus our big city crowd has gone a bit country this morning for one of the hottest acts around. blake shelton. look at that crowd. the cma's male vocalist of the year takes over our summer concert stage in the 8:30 half-hour. coming together for that. >>> first let's begin with this fatal fall at a baseball game. kim fisher from kxas, the nbc station in dallas, is at the rangers ballpark in arlington. kim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, ann. everyone out here is simply in shock over what happened here last night. it started off as a typical play. josh hamilton snagged a foul ball, he went to toss it up into the stands. but it is what happened in the seconds after that that simply shocked everyone. 39-year-old shannon stone, who had come to the game with his son, reached out to grab that ball and he fell over the railing. now some of the people who were around did try to grab him but they just couldn't do it as he fell over. he did fall 20 feet, but what we understand is that he was coherent while he was down there talking with paramedics, asking about his
the warehouse, i remember everyone talking about, we will never need a place that big. it is too much and we will never need it. 10 years later, we have 100% outgrown it. it doesn't allow us to bring in the kinds of products that our customers want us to bring in. there have been a lot of changes in the industry the last few years like requirements in paper and packaging to be more environmentally friendly and that kind of thing. in order to make that happen, we need more room. they come from the city, [reading names] all of these restaurants, not one of them are a chain. they're all independent restaurants. we are able to make them competitive. because customers drive to our facility, we can offer a discount on products and reverses a conventional distributors. we find ourselves -- and this is sort of the emerald city, so to speak. as andrew mentioned, we have 115 employees. 85 of them are union. with our proposed expansion, we will be adding 25 employees to handle the additional business. the majority of our employees live within 5 miles of where we operate. we have very low turnover. long
. that flexibility is called the flow -- float in our charter, and that is a big distinction with the alternative proposal that is still being marketed by mr. adachi. it is important for you to know that. that distinction called vested rights. many cities across the country -- when they have not considered the employees' pension has a vested right, they get into legal trouble very quickly. that is why you see litigation around the country sponsored by employee groups who have never been consulted with, being demanded that they pay more into the pension, but there is no consideration of their vested rights. that concept is embedded in our measure were in good and bad times, we share, so they get something out of this reform. because they get something out of it, they are vested in it. the unions continue to view, as i do, that the alternative proposal being sponsored by mr. adachi does not consider vested rights and therefore will be litigated. in that litigation, there is a great chance in my opinion that the proposal will lose. i am not the city attorney, but if you ask the city attorney, as we
that we can implement? i think that's the big challenge. by having the consultant on now, we are in very good shape. they will be with us in the early planning. i can picture us coming back to you in about a year-and-a-half with the program, with the schedule of the budget, and the scope, and possibly some modifications will be looking for in the levels of service. maybe going to the next level with things like energy recovery. hopefully that answers your question. commissioner moran: yes. you touched on the nature of the partnership over an extended period of time and the ability to not bid on other work. that has come out of some discussions on how we make sure they are not in any way compromised in their ability to give us the best advice that they can. i think that has been structured well. i appreciate your work. >> we bent over backwards. all the lessons learned and then some. i really have to compliment harlan and the contracts group. a lot of work went into this and a lot of effort by city staff to get to this point. there are a lot of people from waste water enterprise here toda
also received recognition in the public arts arena. next you the big peace sign commemorating the anniversary of the peace sign. as another example of p.u.c.- supported art. the next is a picture of our new headquarters. the relationship we have had with the arts commission -- if either goes on to public facilities and buildings, or is used for other public art. with their headquarters, it's an opportunity to put some amazing public art pieces on the p.u.c. building. next slide. while the public art pieces that have been supported have gotten national and international recognition, there's a lot of interest within the p.u.c. staff and the commission to better align the arts dollars. as a staff, we've been working for the past several months to develop guiding principles that would realize how the arts and richmond dollars get better spent. the criteria and principals are listed on this slide. the artwork, would have a nexus to the p.u.c. functions. the second principle is around making in alignment with our community benefits policy. that policy looks for us to be a good neigh

especially right in our building because it's a hospital it's pretty big so it could have landed anywhere but we are kind of lucky we weren't there. >>reporter: this is closer look of the plane. i did speak with the fire chief short time ago and he told me the 2 people inside the plane died. back here live now you are looking at live pictures of the plane that is still inside of the building. no one on the ground or the clinic was hurt. hospital was also not impacted by this. no patients were evacuated and no care was interrupted. investigators still say that they will not release the identity of the victims at this time. live in watsonville, lisa abc 7 news. >> thank you lisa gentleman for the first time j.c. dugard speaks publicly about the 18 years she spent in prison in secret back yard compound near antioch. philip and nancy both now in prison and j.c. starting a new life. diane sawyer has the exclusive interview and tonight jonathan has a preview for you. >> you just do what you have to do. to survive. >>reporter: in an interview with diane sawyer j.c. speaks publicly fo
